Adirondack Sleigh Rides
You know what they say - the only thing better than dashing through the snow on a one-horse open sleigh is adding a two-horse open sleigh. Don't they say that? We'll, we're saying it now. Join your hosts Melissa and George of Adirondack Sleigh Rides and Country Dreams Farm for an iconic winter past time and warm up next to a wood stove with a toasted marshmallow and a cup of cocoa. Looking for something romantic for that special someone? Reserve the services of their private sleigh for an occasion you'll never forget!
Thunder Mountain Dog Sled Rides
Mirror Lake is not just a hot spot for summertime fun; it's one of the coolest spots to enjoy the winter in Lake Placid. Sure, you can skate and ski across the frozen lake, but for something truly unique, take a spin on a real dog sled behind a team of beautiful Alaskan Huskies. The line for Thunder Mountain Dog Sled Rides may look long, but the ½ mile loop on Mirror Lake means you'll have a great story and get to enjoy the rest of your day without spending most of it waiting in the queue for an adventure.
High Falls Gorge
The Adirondacks is spectacular all year long and High Falls Gorge is a perfect example. Last summer we took you on a walking tour of High Falls Gorge and proved that it is entirely possible to enjoy the Adirondacks from the vantage of three-inch platform wedges. This winter, you'll want to don a pair of snowshoes or hiking books for safety to view the magnificent waterfalls, sparkling with snow and ice. It is at once magnificent and stoic, the ice harnessing the remarkable power of the falls in some areas and in others not being able to contain them and a remarkable sight!
Emerald Springs Ranch and Animal Reserve
With six million acres of hiking trails and waterways to explore, you can enjoy a different Adirondack experience every day of the year but for something extra special any time of year, visit Emerald Springs Adirondack Ranch and Animal Reserve. Sessions consist of a lesson on the basics of horseback riding and a guided trail ride through the trails of the private animal reserve. The Ranch's horses have been raised and professionally trained since birth with resistance free training making them ideal for both novice and experienced riders.
